University of Hull: Computer Science (Security and Distributed Computing)
|Institution||University of Hull View institution profile|
|Department||Faculty of Science and Engineering|
Modern devices often rely on data that is distributed across multiple computers, whether closely located or more distant. Developing software for such systems offers many benefits, but it also poses new challenges to be overcome, particularly in guaranteeing the security and robustness of the communication between devices. The MSc at Hull is designed to enable you to overcome those challenges. It prepares you to exploit the extraordinary potential of distributed systems, both in terms of storage capacity and processing power, whilst being aware of the unique constraints and security problems they introduce. You will have access to cutting-edge equipment and facilities, and you will finish with a much greater understanding of how software development needs to adapt to the unique environment of a distributed system. These skills and knowledge are highly sought-after in an industry that is increasingly adopting new distributed technology, such as cloud-based solutions. The course begins in September each year and lasts twelve months. There are two trimesters of taught modules, followed by an individual dissertation project during the third trimester. Studying Computer Science at Hull, you'll benefit from an excellent experience for students, with a supportive student community. We have an international reputation for our research activities, with a strong record of industrial and public grant funding. We are also affiliated with Microsoft’s DreamSpark programme, which allows you to access the latest Microsoft operating systems and development software for home use. Once registered with the department, you can download the software free of charge.
|Level||RQF Level 7|
A minimum 2:2 Bachelor Honours (or equivalent) in “Computer Science” or “Software Engineering” with at least 40 credits (or equivalent) of modules involving programming, including experience of object-oriented programming.
You will be required to submit a personal statement as part of your application which sets out the extent of your object-oriented programming experience. If you would like to discuss this with a member of academic staff who can help you to assess whether their degree will be sufficient preparation then we will be happy to arrange this. You can email the Postgraduate Admissions Team at email@example.com.
On this programme, you will be required to independently develop software in C# and will be expected to know how to do this before you arrive. You will be expected to already be able to write software, but some support will be available to help you with the specific language.
